Rhyme All The Time

Children play with language all the time. They create silly ryhmes and nonsense words. This kind of word play is a very important step in learning to read. They learn that letters and sounds go together to make words and they start to notice that words are all around them... in books, in stores, and in their home.

Here's an Activity Sheet that will help to reinforce the following skills:
  • letter recognition
  • letter sounds
  • word recognition
  • rhyming
Depending on the age of the child, you may have to write the beginning letter on the blank at the beginning of each word. If they can print their letters, let them do it themselves. Or your child can draw a line from the correct letter to the picture.  

Your child can also make up silly rhymes using all or some of the words in each box. (Example: The man with the pan ran to the fan. or The cat with the hat sat on a bat.)

To Print: Double click on the sheet to open it. Then right click and choose Print Picture.
